, there are two issues, one, there is no cpi assumed for dpis cal year 13 mf 14 for non-profits and two, there is no reduced or cost of doing business increases as a balance strategy throughout this report. the assumption that there is no cpi to non-profits this coming year was made because it wasn't part of the last budget. that's a fantasy, we never had a conversation about this second fiscal year in the two year budget and non-profits are facing the same cost pressures the city is facing, health care costs and inability to give raises, the issues are all the same, we have said repeatedly, if we are part of the solution, then we want to be part of the problem, we need to be in this deficit, secondly, the assumption that there won't be any cost of doing business increases, it costs around 20%. years of double digit health care costs, no raises, the city keeps paying lip service to this issue you tell us we're important, let's do something about it in good faith, let's have the conversation and not shut the door. >> any members of the public who wish to comment on item number 1? okay, s

in conjunction with cal transfollowed for the drive project, there is in essence two state agencies that take a look at a public, private partnership application and one is the public investment, or the private investment, i forget, what it stands for, but it is a function of the transportation secretary's office. and it was a committee that was supposed to review, proposals and make comments. secondarily, the state transportation commission is empowered to authorize a public private partnership in lease and contract. this bill, highens the ability to actually act as an initial hurtle and they have a binding, and the binding ability to reject the public, private partnership proposal before it goes to the transportation commission, we think that is not what the original framers of the particular p3 law intended and it does add an extra burden to the process and we are recommending oppose to that. ab 863 is another one that we are recommending oppose, it seems like it was a measure that we would support but page 7 details that this bill would allow for the delegation of nepa, the national, envi

the contract is for a total of 7 hundred bikes 350 will be in san francisco the rest will be down the cal train corridor so very much a pilot and used to evaluate the benefit of bike share in terms of getting more people on the bikes and out of their car giving people more options how to make short trips in the city. although the time it's taken this pilot up and going i think many other cities have already gone past proofing the concept this pilot program was initial ly meant to be 500 bikes but because of funding constraints it's only 7 hundred but we will be reaching out to our regional partners to see if we can get that number up to a thousand. and look to expand we're very confidence that as every other city that's tried this it will be very successful. the good news is the contract is finally awarded and the bikes should be in place and operational by august so a great big step forward. and then just two items on muni service changes 2 different things we're doing one temporary one permanent the temporary one is an extension of what we did during the christmas and new year holiday. we

. it's been pointed out that traders joe's and cvs are replacing cal an and there are more letters but part of the an allowance that the font should remain the same especially on the historic ones even though the tenants are different. it makes no sense to have a sign for a tenant that is no longer there that confuses public. in fact the other night they were going to an event and they ended up at the gift center because there was an event there years before. it wasn't so much about the signage but they remember going to one a few years before that and it's fairly close to the same place. as far as the appeals process, correct me if i am wrong, but it sounds like there would be an ability for discretionary review and even staff created would there not be? >> no. section 604 a specifically states the planning commission doesn't have the authority to comply with articles 6 with the planning code for signs. there would be an appeal. no one can have a dr before the planning commission but they can -- appeal. >> could staff do that if they thought something was inappropriate? >> it woul

back to the early days in the first 20 years when we were primarily a grantmaker making grants to low-cal practitioners and policymakers. i started this program about four years, five years ago now, i think, time flies, to really bring in members of our marshall memorial fellowship network of which david chiu is one of our alumni. some of our past grantees and also the next crop of practitioners and local civic leaders who are really looking to change their home communities by looking abroad or looking to other cities to see what other cities are doing well and how that might be imported back home or translated back home. so the comparative dom particular policy program works primarily in the 25 cities that doug mentioned, but not exclusively in those cities. we really are looking for some of the best practices in education and workforce development, in integration of diverse populations and affordability and quality of life issues in cities and regions and also -- and sustainability, in which encompasses a broad range of things. it's primarily environmental sustainability. the overarchin
